This is a 1960 home. An urgent exterior and interior remodeling was needed for a young couple entering a married life.
These drawings are my vision of the future façade and all sides of the home.
Here I am only showing the front view façade leading in the living room.
Concept One shows a side entry and living room windows facing the street.
Concept Two shows a front entry framed by two living room windows.

Read the review my client wrote me after I delivered and presented the drawings.
“Valentina did what we were afraid would be impossible. She turned our nondescript California bungalow/craftsman house into a beautiful Italian home. She created two design concepts that were both so beautiful we had a hard time choosing one over the other!
I would recommend Valentina to anyone. She was wonderful to work with – she listened to our ideas and looked at pictures we liked and then created two designs that were both so great we didn’t need to make changes to anything. She has a great talent for listening to her clients and turning their fuzzy, sprawling ideas into concrete, beautiful realities. She was very patient, attentive and responsive, always returning calls promptly and when she would leave a message she would clearly leave the day and time that she called along with the message. I loved that! Along with other examples of her work, such as her design plans, it showed me that she is detailed and precise with ALL aspects of the job; she shows the same level of attention to every step of the project and client relationship. So far we have used one company to complete the work that she referred to us and we are more than happy with her recommendation. She is also very willing to work with contractors that we had already chosen. Valentina takes pride in her work and the love for what she does is very evident. You can trust that Valentina will treat your project with the same level of attention that she would use for her own home. I wish our project was done already so I could post before and after photos but I didn’t want to wait that long to get word out about Valentina. Whether you would like an Italian style home, something very modern, or anything else, Valentina has the talent to make her clients dreams a reality (She also does interior design, landscaping, lighting, kitchen and baths, space planning, custom designed furniture, materials selection, staging, restaurant and salon designs)”.
